-- Usable range of over 5km
Leading low power radio manufacturer Radiometrix Ltd has launched the new WFX2 radio Transceiver module. Ideally suited to industrial applications requiring long range and high-reliability, the WFX2 offers fast switching together with +27 dBm (500 mW) RF power output and ETSI Category 1 (Class 1) receiver performance.  The WFX2 is available for operation in the 500 mW 458.5-459.5 MHz license-free Industrial/ Commercial Telemetry and Telecommand, Medical and Biological Applications band in the UK and Ireland.

This new 256-channel module features an exceptional RX-to-TX switching time (5 ms), has a receive sensitivity of -118 dBm and can achieve a usable range of over 5km over open ground. The feature rich interface offers analogue RSSI and both logic level and analogue baseband inputs and outputs. A 4-way internal channel select switch is standard. The compact WFX2 (85 x 55 x 13 mm) requires a regulated +5V DC power supply and is re-programmable via microcontroller UART interface, drawing 35mA in receive and under 400mA in transmit.
